“My hometown? Well... It was just an ordinary village. We were poor... The reason I came all the way out to the city was to make money to feed my younger brothers...”
—Ogier to Lilina in a support conversation

Ogier (オージェ Ōje, translated Oujay in the fan translations) is a playable character in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. He is a Mercenary from Lycia hired by Ostia. He can be promoted to a Hero during the game, depending on the player’s preferences.


Ogier joins a band of Ostian soldiers in order to pay for his impoverished family’s meals. He joins Roy's party in Chapter 8 alongside Gwendolyn and Barthe, aiming to save Lilina and defeat Leygance in order to hand the Ostian throne to its rightful owner.


Ogier is a somewhat reserved person, he often comes off as shy and respectful to others, often considering them to be of higher status than himself as he came from a dirt poor family. Ogier is also greatly motivated to train himself in order to protect everyone else. Larum accuses him twice of being perverted in their support conversations, although with her personality, it is unlikely without knowing what Ogier was thinking. However, he is very kind and has great moral obligations.

Ogier has little going for him as he is just a later joining Dieck with an even lower level (which means he will be far from promotion for a while). While subpar, he is not hard to train as the Western Isles feature weaker axe users which will get him to catch up to speed. In all, he is a mediocre unit compared to your other early joining sword units but can be quickly brought up to speed if the player wills it during the Western Isles.

Character EndingEdit

Ogier - The Little Hero (小さな『勇者』 Chiisana “Yūsha” lit. The Little "Brave")

  • Ogier continued to travel around the world as a mercenary, and his name gradually spread across the continent as a great warrior. Even in his fame, he kept the utmost respect for his comrades in the war, saying that he never would have gotten as far as he did without their help.


“I can't die...”
—Ogier's death quote in The Binding Blade.


Ogier the Dane was a legendary character who first appeared in The Song of Roland, a French medieval series of poems which the Elibe games reference often.


  • On the official Japanese website for Nintendo, Ogier won 25th place out of 80 in the character popularity poll for Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. The male-female vote ratio is 2:1. The voter comments seem to generally focus on his modest, brave, and humble personality and his backstory regarding his impoverished family.
